Food for thought  22nd January 2010


The proud man counts his newspaper clippings, the humble man his blessings.


The Lord is saying. Forget the past with your failures. Walk with me and you will gain the ground you have lost. I will restore and give you even more blessings as you determine to pick yourself up and walk on. I use everything to bring my purposes about so do not look back with regret but look forward with hope. In me is every answer and I am your answer now.


Adventures in India

....Thursday 10th December 09

We were taken by car just around the corner to a small building. We could really have walked it very easily but Brother Raju was always so protective of us because whereever we went we caused quite a stir. Anita writes how her heart went out to all the beautiful children, most of them with AIDs/HIV positive but a few street children.

Brother Raju had organised this meeting by contacting all the AIDs children in the area and given them bus fare to get here. I sang a few songs which got them all up on their feet dancing. Gudrun and Florence prayed and gave a little sermon, then we all gave out their portions of cake, rice, orange and a protein drink, plus some money for the bus fare back.

Brother Raju would like to do this on a regular basis and its on his list of priorities to have a meeting once a month. This will need some financial backing.

Broter Raju had bought a big Christmas cake for the children that we handed out.


We then went out to help to feed the children, the others helped dish the dinner out and I sang and played the guitar

The street children all seemed to be wearing the same dusty and grey clothes, their faces and hair so dull, they had nothing, absolutely nothing at all, none had shoes. Some of them had been in accidents because they run alongside trains to beg for food and if they are not quick enough the trains can take off their legs or arms. It costs £100 a month to feed these and give food to the AIDs children. It must continue!!

An excerpt from Rick Joyner's word of the week

Prepared for the Times, Part 3

Week 3, 2010

Think about this: Could I describe a voice to you and you recognize it with much confidence? I would have a hard time putting into words what my wife’s voice sounds like, except using some generalizations. I doubt anyone who has never heard her voice could recognize it this way. However, if she were in a large crowd of people who were all talking, I would know immediately which voice was hers. How? Because I have been with her for so long. Likewise, I think the only way we can really know the voice of the Lord is to have been with Him.

There are really only two ways by which we recognize others—by their face or by voice. How many people could you recognize by their hands or feet, unless there was some outstanding feature? Again, we recognize others by their face or voice. The Word of God compels us to seek the Lord’s face and to know His voice.

I have read the Bible many times and have studied in depth how the Lord has spoken to people. However, that is not how I know the voice of the Lord. I do not know it because of an audible tone like I do my wife’s, but I know it by a spiritual tone, which is likewise unique in the universe. However, as the Scriptures teach, there are many different voices in the universe, which are all unique. So how do we distinguish His? Again, we must know Him.

The Lord could obviously make His voice so outstanding that there is no way others could come close to duplicating it. Therefore, we would always be able to distinguish His voice from others, but He has not done this for our sakes. To know the spiritual tone of the Lord’s voice, we must know His heart and His mind—we must know Him. This is something we grow up into as we grow up into Him. Those who are not true disciples, who are not true seekers, will not be able to distinguish His voice.

This is also why the Lord did not say that the lambs knew His voice, but that His sheep did. The lambs, the younger ones, need to follow the more mature ones until they too know His voice so well that they can distinguish it from all others.

I once read an account by a man who was sitting on a hill in the Middle East. He saw three shepherds coming from different directions, bringing their flocks to a watering hole all at the same time. The man thought he was about to see such a mingling of these three flocks that the shepherds would never be able to get them all sorted out. Sure enough, when they arrived at the water all of the flocks intermingled so that no flock could then be distinguished. However, the shepherds did not seem concerned but just stood talking to each other. After the sheep had all been watered, each shepherd took a different path and started singing as he walked. There was a great convulsion within the large massed flock, but then little streams started out after each shepherd until all of the flocks were separated again. Every sheep knew its shepherd’s voice and could distinguish it from all of the others. Why? Because they had been with him for so long, hearing him sing in the pastures. That is how we must know the voice of the Lord and be able to distinguish it from all of the other voices in the world. There is no substitute for just being with Him.

Our devotion this year will be to sink our roots deeper into the Scriptures, loving His truth enough to seek it. We will also seek to know His voice better by getting closer to Him. If we stay focused on this pursuit, this will be one of the best and most important years of our lives. In the times to come, our lives will likely depend on how well we have pursued these basic disciplines as true disciples.
